from what i can see the hasbro helmet's top half seems a little elongated compared to the Anovos

Yeah. I'd agree with that.

The Anovos is more accurate, but considering the vast difference in price, the Hasbro is not bad at all. Also, in a dimly lit room the Hasbro helmet shines from the metal look. The Anovos kind of disappears a bit.

I received notice from Sideshow overnight that my Hot Toys Life-size The Child has shipped and will arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to getting this and seeing how it compares with the Sideshow version.

Comparison of the Hot Toys and Sideshow Life-Size The Child

The Hot Toys version (left) has a chubbier look to him and happier looking eyes. I also like the coloring a bit better (including the robe).

The necklace on the Hot Toys version is not the one that came with him. That's the super cool metal version I bought from the link in this thread that is thought to be the original creator. The one it came with is larger and plastic and looks like plastic.

As you can see the Hot Toys version is poseable including his mouth.

This Grogu is true to form and likes to have snacks.

I think the chubbiness to the face really adds a lot of life to him.

The Sideshow version is naked under his robes and his robe is not removable.

The Hot Toys version wears a black bodysuit and his robe attaches at four points with snaps.

The Hot Toys version can use the Force and levitate.

The Hot Toys version comes with a different set of ears and two other sets of hands, but I did not show them in the pictures.


These are the lever knobs from the Razor Crest. The Hot Toys version looks like metal and has a much more realistic look to it. It also has a hole on the opposite side, where the Sideshow version just has an outline of where the hole would be and it's darkened. I do feel the Sideshow version is more accurate in size. My first thought when seeing the Hot Toys version is that it's too small. Both versions have magnets in them, but the Hot Toys version is much stronger and doesn't require that it's held in a specific position.

Don't get me wrong... I have no regrets getting the Sideshow version. I have it positioned under my light box in the TV room where the Mandalorian poster is currently being displayed and he is looking up and looks adorable. He reminds me of a child actor that was on set and suddenly became fascinated with the lights or microphone above his head. I also think the Sideshow version is going to hold up better over time since he doesn't have flexible skin that can be moved.

There’s also a season one guide but I’m not sure it has any behind the scenes photos like we’re expecting from the visual guide, like isolated prop photos.

Grogu received a new treat today. I ordered these off of Amazon yesterday. $6.50 was kind of pricy considering I only needed one in green, but I couldn't resist. The thing I can't wrap my brain around is why they are suggesting keeping pills in something shaped to look like a desert item that would entice a kid.

I placed a magnet inside to make it easier for him to hold, but he actually grips it very well. I may attempt to customize one of the other ones to look like it has a bite out of it and paint it to match.

Hey guys, wanted to show you some stuff I've been working on instead of starting a thread since... it kinda coincides with the stuff here.

So this is armor that I've painted under the guidance of Mr Mold Maker. I'm also currently having my helmet painted by Derek at Legacy Efx (It's an EFX helmet that I modified some of the details on to be more accurate where the poorly done mold that EFX made messed up. So it'll be a helmet with not only lineage to the original helmet, but a lineage paint job to the original shop as well).

Armor is all great ape armor, painted and finished with custom mixed paint and weathered with oils, acrylics, and fuller's earth:

RINZLERTRON -- nice job! I'm very interested in the technique used in picture M5 above. It looks like it's the forearm controler. What technique did you use for the white weathering along the left side and the top? It almost looks like it's been embedded with sand! Nice! I really like that...

It’s just fullers earth. Once the whole paint job is sealed, I use some hairspray and mist it on, then use fullers earth to coat the “deep” areas. Then I just wash the higher points off with some water.

Do you then use clear coat or a satin coat afterwards? I would be concerned that the Fuller's earth would eventually come off...
